Just a note of gratitude for the fine sportsmanship that was displayed by the team members of your varsity baseball programs.  Both teams demonstrated positive sportsmanship throughout the entire contest. The acts of leadership Julian Murillo of Fond du Lac and John Nett of Kimberly displayed during the contest were noticed.  Thanks for the opportunity to be part of this contest.

Fox Valley Lutheran @ Freedom
May 15, 2018

Isaac Gerhardt of FVL and both Noah Taege and Jack Williams of Freedom were the clear “example setters” for their teams during this contest.  Each of them showed lots of hustle, excellent sportsmanship while interacting with opponents, coaches and umpires, and they spent a little extra time helping me after numerous plays by retrieving a bat or a foul ball.  Both the communities of Freedom and Appleton should be proud to have student athletes who act in this manner.  We as umpires appreciate the positive atmosphere they create on the field.  Thank you to all involved and best of luck in the playoffs!

Wrightstown @ Oconto Falls
May 8, 2018

My partner and I were treated to an exceptional display of sportsmanship by both teams. Coach Chuck Verbeten from Wrightstown and Coach Cory Albrecht from Oconto Falls have teams that are competitive, but also display excellent sportsmanship. Please and thank you were the normal words of conversation between the catchers and batters. Both coaches should be proud of their team’s high standards that were proudly displayed. One lady presented the most leadership on the field during both games of the doubleheader. Bridget Froehlke of Wrightstown stood out among both teams as a true leader. She was the spark of enthusiasm for Wrightstown. Her positive comments to all of the players on both teams were commendable. Wrightstown’s AD Bob Caelwaerts and Principal Scott Thompson should be proud of this student leader. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this exceptional presentation of sportsmanship.

Niagara @ Crivitz
May 10, 2018

We were presented with excellent sportsmanship displayed by both coaches. The coaches for Crivitz and Niagara need to be acknowledged. They not only encouraged their players on their teams to play a better game, but when the other team performed outstanding, they would let the other team’s player know that they were impressed with the player’s actions. Never a discouraging word. Both coaches exhibited the pinnacle of what a coach should be. I know why Crivitz and Niagara school systems selected these coaches. I understand why these coaches have longevity at these schools. I want to thank Crivitz Coach Arlin Grandaw and Niagara Coach Duane Blagec for an exciting and pleasant afternoon of softball.

Many acts of positive sportsmanship were observed.  West DePere players Kaden Kosobucki and Cory Timm showed excellent sportsmanship during their plate appearances. Seymour players Owen Geurts and Trent Blake showed numerous positive acts of sportsmanship throughout the contest.  Phil and I wanted to congratulate these young men, their coaches, and their parents for their excellent display of positive sportsmanship at an education based athletic event. Best of luck to both teams in the playoffs and keep up the great work.
